Funny to read, great for a laugh to. I would use this book and ask the kids what they think is going to happen next and introduce them to foreshadowing. ( )

This book is a great book for students about the age of 8-12 to understand the concept of opposites. It has challenging vocabulary and great comprehension for students. ( )

Fortunately is a story recommended for upper elementary students who learn the causes and effects of the things they do. It's a fun and predictable story the children can follow along to. ( )

A very easy read for a wide range of children hoping to expand their vocabulary. "Fortunately" sees a little boy going though a series of god and bad events. Using the word fortunately as often as possible to teach the readers the meaning of the word. ( )
